limbaugh. >> now, there are people that don't like it, even on the republican side because it has tax increases in it, some say tax increases on the rich. leaves some of obama's tax increases in it. heritage foundation has done deep analysis of this. one of their problems with the ryan budget is, and they do have problems with it, is that hefty tax increases of obama's are maintained. they're kept in it. they're not done away with. >> paul ryan's budget leaves in the increase in top income tax rate that president obama achieved in january, the conservative blog red state noted the ryan budget leaves in 1 trillion in tax revenue in president obama's health care reform bill, including taxes on tanning salons and high value health care plans, which provoked erick erickson to question whether house republicans should even vote for it. since paul ryan's budget keeps the obama care tax revenue stream, isn't voting for his budget a violation of the repeal pledge? and in an interview with cnbc, paul ryan could not continue to pretend his budget choices had any attachment to reality. >> in ter
these knuckleheads? orregard to taxing the rich cutting out loopholes, everybody in this country gets some form of entitlement in one shape or form. i don't understand why because i get a paycheck and somebody else makes their money through investments or a different way, why i am taxed more. if you earn money, you get taxed on it the same as everybody else. i do not agree with that at all. and i don't understand why we have to give tax subsidies to corporations that do not need it. why on earth does the oil company need our money? why does the agriculture business need our money? you are making enough money. cut out the tax loopholes and we can get out of this mess. host: we are covering the cpac conference and there are a number of ways you can watch and listen. depending on what the house yesterday, we will be live with the house this morning, once the house recesses, the cpac coverage can be seen on this network. you can also listen on c-span radio and wanted anytime on our website, c-span.org. also be a location to what some of the conferences that get underway this morning. some other com
, again, if the president wants to let our unwillingness to raise taxes get in the way, then we're not going to be able to set differences aside and focus on what we agree on. and my take away was that. >> frank and candid are always interesting diplomatic code words when year overseas. thiser boehner in today's "the washington post." for all of washington's focus on the president's outreach to republicans, it's his engagement with members of his own party n that will determine whether we succeed dealing with the challenges facing our economy. the fact is there are folks on both side of the aisle that talk a good game on the idea of reforming medicare or doing something about social security, nobody wants to own the plan. they want to agree to it reluctantly to a plan brought up by the other side because here's another fact. medicare and social security are universally popular and even in a republican primary getting caught messing around with social security without a reason is bad politics. so any time you hear this from either side, the other side needs to lead, translation
. they think if we just squeeze squeeze, squeeze, even as we lower taxes at the high end that will create prosperity. that's really a pipe dream. >> john: i'm confused. the president said he doesn't want to touch medicare at all but because of a divided government we might have to do things we don't like. >> no, he said if we want to get revenues they'll bring up topics like the entitlement issues that we will have to discuss. he was not backing away from my view a solid commitment to maintaining it. he said those of us who are supporters of medicare and social security have to focus on maintaining solvency and stability going forward. he said, this was music to our ears. he said social security was not part of the debt issue. it is a totally different issue. to the extent that we get involved. social security at all it has to be about that problem and it's solvent and committed to that 75 year window we've been committed to. as far as medicare, with what wave' done with the affordable care act we're in good shape for the next ten years. but after that even the cbo numbers show with the d
crunched the numbers and under the democrats' plan they would race taxes by $1.5 trillion. they just raised taxes. why would anyone think this budget is a good idea. maybe somebody who does is the former chair of the president's council on american advisors. from the university offing should school of business. uses one of those washington calculators. how are you doing? >> great to see you. i thought you would describe the thank you note you were about to write to the president for cutting government at a faster rate since world war ii. >> 6 trillion in debt. you're using to giving your students quizes and tests, right? >> here we go. >> this is the hannity intellectual contest, and we'll see our good of a political spin artist you are. close friends with barack obama -- >> i'm shocked he wasn't elected pope. here's point number one. this week wore talking about the president talking about balancing the budget, and we'll listen to candidate obama. >> i know where this is going. >> what is important to recognize is that we've already cut $2.7 trillion out of the deficit. if the sequester st
in protecting himself or herself politically vote to raise taxes on those he represents? why? because they get to make more voters angry with them by cutting medicare, because they get their means tested? give me a break. so this odd republican out there is going to both raise taxes and make his somewhat better off voters pay more for health care? no way. we really don't need to get to the liberals, progressives, but just for the sake of candor, why on this god's earth would a good democrat need to cut or i don't get why people are talking about a deal, that no politician out there worried about his or her re-election or renomination would ever want to i can mmake. the truth of what i'm saying will shine through. and the sequester won't seem so bad after all. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, shame as it ever was. today, both governor romney and congressman ryan took the stage at the big conservative summit outside of washington. so did they talk about t
unwillingness to raise taxes get in the way, then we're not going to be able to set differences aside. >> so they are trying to act inflexible and it seems that the president has held on to his guns. >> right, and two of those statements, the two statements john boehner made, aren't exactly true, to be very xartable about it. the president does care about fiscal balance. he's put a deal on the table. he just doesn't think we need to get there as quickly as the republicans claim we get there. and in terms of unlocking our energy, we are closer to energy independence than we've ever been. they may want to drill in places the president doesn't. but we're making a lot of progress on energy. i think eric cantor's statement put his finger on it. the republicans in the house in particular, and we're going to see how republicans in the senate do, that the republicans in the house are simply not willing to raise another penny in taxes from well-off people as part of the effort to balance the budget. in fact, the ryan budget cuts the top income tax rate from 39.6% to 25% without explaining all the mid
but kept the tax benefits to balance the budget, which isn't balanced. gives tax cuts to people that make a million dollars a year, cuts medicaid benefits, privatizes medicare benefits. this is crazy. the problem with paul ryan is people don't believe him any more, simply don't believe him. he may be another sarah palin, his day has come and gone. it is hard to take him seriously if you're a policy person. you can't be a successful conservative or successful liberal, the numbers have to work, you have to be taken seriously, you have to be truthful. that budget was a propaganda document, not a serious budget. i was very surprised at that. >> steve, what did you make of that, insofar as the ryan budget, over 40% of savings are based on repealing the president's health care law which is law of the land, being enacted in over 25 states. is he a serious political figure, a serious policy figure in republican circles? >> he is a serious political figure and a serious policy figure in the republican party, but the governor's criticism about the budget is spot on. its formulations are not based i

what the fundamental differences are. both parties have come out strongly in favor of examining the tax code for loopholes, deductions, exclusions, and ways that money sort of leaks out of the tax system. both parties have said they want to do that, but the real difference is that what do they want to do with the money? the house budget would take the money generated and provide another tax cut would go i believe disproportionately to the wealthy, and the budget that we passed out of the committee yesterday would take that money and apply it to deficit reduction. i think that is as an independent as somebody who has looked at the issue as to me this is a reasonable way to do it, particularly when you look back to 2011 when we started this deficit reduction process, and if you add what has been done since 2011 in the way of cuts and revenues and to the budget that was passed yesterday, it comes out 65% cuts and 35% revenues. that is a reasonable balance that the american people can p support. >> all right. senator angus king, we have to leave it right there, and thank you for your time
